This was problematic for space usage, as the semantics of maximumBy and minimumBy essentially require that they examine every element of the data structure. Using foldr1 to examine every element results in space usage proportional to the size of the data structure. For the common case of lists, this could be particularly bad (see #10830). For the common case of lists, switching the implementations of maximumBy and minimumBy to foldl1 solves the issue, assuming GHC's strictness analysis can then make these functions only use O(1) stack space. As of base 4.16, we have switched to employing foldl' over foldl1, not relying on GHC's optimiser. See https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/-/issues/17867 for more context. -} {- Note [Monoidal list folds] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Folds of lists of monoid elements should generally use 'mconcat', rather than @foldr mappend mempty@. This allows specialized mconcat implementations an opportunity to combine elements efficiently. For example, `mappend` of strict `Text` and `ByteString` values typically needs to reallocate and copy the existing data, making incremental construction expensive (likely quadratic in the number of elements combined). The `mconcat` implementations for `Text` and `ByteString` preallocate the required storage, and then combine all the list elements in a single pass. -} -------------- -- $overview -- -- #overview# -- Foldable structures are reduced to a summary value by accumulating -- contributions to the result one element at a time. -- -- == Left and right folds -- -- #leftright# -- Merging the contribution of the current element with an accumulator value -- from a partial result is performed by an /operator/ function, either -- explicitly provided by the caller as in `foldr`, implicit count as in -- `length`, or partly implicit as in `foldMap` (where each element is mapped -- into a 'Monoid', and the monoid's `mappend` operator performs the merge). -- -- A key distinction is between left-associative and right-associative -- folds: -- -- * In left-associative folds the accumulator is a partial fold over the -- elements that __precede__ the current element, and is passed to the -- operator as its first (left) argument.

The outer-most application of -- the operator merges the contribution of the first element of the structure -- with the contributions of all its successors. -- -- These two types of folds are typified by the left-associative strict -- 'foldl'' and the right-associative lazy `foldr`. -- -- @ -- 'foldl'' :: Foldable t => (b -> a -> b) -> b -> t a -> b -- `foldr` :: Foldable t => (a -> b -> b) -> b -> t a -> b -- @ -- -- Example usage: -- -- >>> foldl' (+) 0 [1..100] -- 5050 -- >>> foldr (&&) True (repeat False) -- False -- -- The first argument of both is an explicit /operator/ that merges the -- contribution of an element of the structure with a partial fold over, -- respectively, either the preceding or following elements of the structure. -- -- The second argument of both is an initial accumulator value @z@ of type -- @b@. This is the result of the fold when the structure is empty. -- When the structure is non-empty, this is the accumulator value merged with -- the first element in left-associative folds, or with the last element in -- right-associative folds. -- -- The third and final argument is a @Foldable@ structure containing elements -- @(a, b, c, …)@. -- -- * __'foldl''__ takes an operator function of the form: -- -- @ -- f :: b -- accumulated fold of the initial elements -- -> a -- current element -- -> b -- updated fold, inclusive of current element -- @ -- -- If the structure's last element is @y@, the result of the fold is: -- -- @ -- g y . … . g c . g b . g a $ z -- where g element !acc = f acc element -- @ -- -- Since 'foldl'' is strict in the accumulator, this is always -- a [strict](#strict) reduction with no opportunity for early return or -- intermediate results.

As a result, -- `foldr` is well suited to define both [corecursive](#corec) -- and [short-circuit](#short) reductions. -- -- When the operator is always strict in the second argument, 'foldl'' is -- generally a better choice than `foldr`. When `foldr` is called with a -- strict operator, evaluation cannot begin until the last element is -- reached, by which point a deep stack of pending function applications -- may have been built up in memory. -- -- $chirality -- -- #chirality# -- Foldable structures are generally expected to be efficiently iterable from -- left to right. Right-to-left iteration may be substantially more costly, or -- even impossible (as with, for example, infinite lists). The text in the -- sections that follow that suggests performance differences between -- left-associative and right-associative folds assumes /left-handed/ -- structures in which left-to-right iteration is cheaper than right-to-left -- iteration. -- -- In finite structures for which right-to-left sequencing no less efficient -- than left-to-right sequencing, there is no inherent performance distinction -- between left-associative and right-associative folds. If the structure's -- @Foldable@ instance takes advantage of this symmetry to also make strict -- right folds space-efficient and lazy left folds corecursive, one need only -- take care to choose either a strict or lazy method for the task at hand. -- -- Foldable instances for symmetric structures should strive to provide equally -- performant left-associative and right-associative interfaces. The main -- limitations are: -- -- * The lazy 'fold', 'foldMap' and 'toList' methods have no right-associative -- counterparts. -- * The strict 'foldMap'' method has no left-associative counterpart. -- -- Thus, for some foldable structures 'foldr'' is just as efficient as 'foldl'' -- for strict reduction, and 'foldl' may be just as appropriate for corecursive -- folds as 'foldr'. -- -- Finally, in some less common structures (e.g. /snoc/ lists) right to left -- iterations are cheaper than left to right. Such structures are poor -- candidates for a @Foldable@ instance, and are perhaps best handled via their -- type-specific interfaces. If nevertheless a @Foldable@ instance is -- provided, the material in the sections that follow applies to these also, by -- replacing each method with one with the opposite associativity (when -- available) and switching the order of arguments in the /operator/ function. -- -- You may need to pay careful attention to strictness of the fold's /operator/ -- when its strictness is different between its first and second argument. -- For example, while @('+')@ is expected to be commutative and strict in both -- arguments, the list concatenation operator @('++')@ is not commutative and -- is only strict in the initial constructor of its first argument. The fold: -- -- > myconcat xs = foldr (\a b -> a ++ b) [] xs -- -- is subtantially cheaper (linear in the length of the consumed portion of the -- final list, thus e.g. constant time/space for just the first element) than: -- -- > revconcat xs = foldr (\a b -> b ++ a) [] xs -- -- In which the total cost scales up with both the number of lists combined and -- the number of elements ultimately consumed. A more efficient way to combine -- lists in reverse order, is to use: -- -- > revconcat = foldr (++) [] . reverse -------------- -- $reduction -- -- As observed in the [above description](#leftright) of left and right folds, -- there are three general ways in which a structure can be reduced to a -- summary value: -- -- * __Recursive__ reduction, which is strict in all the elements of the -- structure. This produces a single final result only after processing the -- entire input structure, and so the input must be finite. -- -- * __Corecursion__, which yields intermediate results as it encounters -- additional input elements. Lazy processing of the remaining elements -- makes the intermediate results available even before the rest of the -- input is processed. The input may be unbounded, and the caller can -- stop processing intermediate results early. -- -- * __Short-circuit__ reduction, which examines some initial sequence of the -- input elements, but stops once a termination condition is met, returning a -- final result based only on the elements considered up to that point. The -- remaining elements are not considered. The input should generally be -- finite, because the termination condition might otherwise never be met. -- -- Whether a fold is recursive, corecursive or short-circuiting can depend on -- both the method chosen to perform the fold and on the operator passed to -- that method (which may be implicit, as with the `mappend` method of a monoid -- instance). -- -- There are also hybrid cases, where the method and/or operator are not well -- suited to the task at hand, resulting in a fold that fails to yield -- incremental results until the entire input is processed, or fails to -- strictly evaluate results as it goes, deferring all the work to the -- evaluation of a large final thunk. Such cases should be avoided, either by -- selecting a more appropriate @Foldable@ method, or by tailoring the operator -- to the chosen method. -- -- The distinction between these types of folds is critical, both in deciding -- which @Foldable@ method to use to perform the reduction efficiently, and in -- writing @Foldable@ instances for new structures. Below is a more detailed -- overview of each type. -------------- -- $strict -- #strict# -- -- Common examples of strict recursive reduction are the various /aggregate/ -- functions, like 'sum', 'product', 'length', as well as more complex -- summaries such as frequency counts. These functions return only a single -- value after processing the entire input structure. In such cases, lazy -- processing of the tail of the input structure is generally not only -- unnecessary, but also inefficient. Thus, these and similar folds should be -- implemented in terms of strict left-associative @Foldable@ methods (typically -- 'foldl'') to perform an efficient reduction in constant space. -- -- Conversely, an implementation of @Foldable@ for a new structure should -- ensure that 'foldl'' actually performs a strict left-associative reduction. -- -- The 'foldMap'' method is a special case of 'foldl'', in which the initial -- accumulator is `mempty` and the operator is @mappend . f@, where @f@ maps -- each input element into the 'Monoid' in question. Therefore, 'foldMap'' is -- an appropriate choice under essentially the same conditions as 'foldl'', and -- its implementation for a given @Foldable@ structure should also be a strict -- left-associative reduction. -- -- While the examples below are not necessarily the most optimal definitions of -- the intended functions, they are all cases in which 'foldMap'' is far more -- appropriate (as well as more efficient) than the lazy `foldMap`. -- -- > length = getSum . foldMap' (const (Sum 1)) -- > sum = getSum . foldMap' Sum -- > product = getProduct . foldMap' Product -- -- [ The actual default definitions employ coercions to optimise out -- 'getSum' and 'getProduct'. ] -------------- -- $strictlist -- -- The full list of strict recursive functions in this module is: -- -- * Provided the operator is strict in its left argument: -- -- @'foldl'' :: Foldable t => (b -> a -> b) -> b -> t a -> b@ -- -- * Provided `mappend` is strict in its left argument: -- -- @'foldMap'' :: (Foldable t, Monoid m) => (a -> m) -> t a -> m@ -- -- * Provided the instance is correctly defined: -- -- @ -- `length` :: Foldable t => t a -> Int -- `sum` :: (Foldable t, Num a) => t a -> a -- `product` :: (Foldable t, Num a) => t a -> a -- `maximum` :: (Foldable t, Ord a) => t a -> a -- `minimum` :: (Foldable t, Ord a) => t a -> a -- `maximumBy` :: Foldable t => (a -> a -> Ordering) -> t a -> a -- `minimumBy` :: Foldable t => (a -> a -> Ordering) -> t a -> a -- @ -------------- -- $lazy -- -- #corec# -- Common examples of lazy corecursive reduction are functions that map and -- flatten a structure to a lazy stream of result values, i.e. an iterator -- over the transformed input elements. In such cases, it is important to -- choose a @Foldable@ method that is lazy in the tail of the structure, such -- as `foldr` (or `foldMap`, if the result @Monoid@ has a lazy `mappend` as -- with e.g. ByteString Builders). -- -- Conversely, an implementation of `foldr` for a structure that can -- accommodate a large (and possibly unbounded) number of elements is expected -- to be lazy in the tail of the input, allowing operators that are lazy in the -- accumulator to yield intermediate results incrementally. Such folds are -- right-associative, with the tail of the stream returned as a lazily -- evaluated component of the result (an element of a tuple or some other -- non-strict constructor, e.g. the @(:)@ constructor for lists). -- -- The @toList@ function below lazily transforms a @Foldable@ structure to a -- List.

When this -- works, it is generally not necessary to define a custom instance by hand. -- Though in some cases one may be able to get slightly faster hand-tuned code, -- care is required to avoid producing slower code, or code that is not -- sufficiently lazy, strict or /lawful/. -- -- The hand-crafted instances can get away with only defining one of 'foldr' or -- 'foldMap'. All the other methods have default definitions in terms of one -- of these. The default definitions have the expected strictness and the -- expected asymptotic runtime and space costs, modulo small constant factors. -- If you choose to hand-tune, benchmarking is advised to see whether you're -- doing better than the default derived implementations, plus careful tests to -- ensure that the custom methods are correct. -- -- Below we construct a @Foldable@ instance for a data type representing a -- (finite) binary tree with depth-first traversal. -- -- > data Tree a = Empty | Leaf a | Node (Tree a) a (Tree a) -- -- a suitable instance would be: -- -- > instance Foldable Tree where -- > foldr f z Empty = z -- > foldr f z (Leaf x) = f x z -- > foldr f z (Node l k r) = foldr f (f k (foldr f z r)) l -- -- The 'Node' case is a right fold of the left subtree whose initial -- value is a right fold of the rest of the tree. -- -- For example, when @f@ is @(':')@, all three cases return an immediate value, -- respectively @z@ or a /cons cell/ holding @x@ or @l@, with the remainder the -- structure, if any, encapsulated in a lazy thunk. This meets the expected -- efficient [corecursive](#corec) behaviour of 'foldr'. -- -- Alternatively, one could define @foldMap@: -- -- > instance Foldable Tree where -- > foldMap f Empty = mempty -- > foldMap f (Leaf x) = f x -- > foldMap f (Node l k r) = foldMap f l <> f k <> foldMap f r -- -- And indeed some efficiency may be gained by directly defining both, -- avoiding some indirection in the default definitions that express -- one in terms of the other. If you implement just one, likely 'foldr' -- is the better choice. -- -- A binary tree typically (when balanced, or randomly biased) provides equally -- efficient access to its left and right subtrees. This makes it possible to -- define a `foldl` optimised for [corecursive](#corec) folds with operators -- that are lazy in their first (left) argument. -- -- > instance Foldable Tree where -- > foldr f z Empty = z -- > foldr f z (Leaf x) = f x z -- > foldr f z (Node l k r) = foldr f (f k (foldr f z r)) l -- > -- -- > foldMap f Empty = mempty -- > foldMap f (Leaf x) = f x -- > foldMap f (Node l k r) = foldMap f l <> f k <> foldMap f r -- > -- -- > foldl f z Empty = z -- > foldl f z (Leaf x) = f z x -- > foldl f z (Node l k r) = foldl f (f (foldl f z l) k) r -- -- Now left-to-right and right-to-left iteration over the structure -- elements are equally efficient (note the mirror-order output when -- using `foldl`): -- -- >>> foldr (\e acc -> e : acc) [] (Node (Leaf 1) 2 (Leaf 3)) -- [1,2,3] -- >>> foldl (\acc e -> e : acc) [] (Node (Leaf 1) 2 (Leaf 3)) -- [3,2,1] -- -- We can carry this further, and define more non-default methods... -- -- The structure definition actually admits trees that are unbounded on either -- or both sides. The only fold that can plausibly terminate for a tree -- unbounded on both left and right is `null`, when defined as shown below. -- The default definition in terms of `foldr` diverges if the tree is unbounded -- on the left. Here we define a variant that avoids travelling down the tree -- to find the left-most element and just examines the root node. -- -- > null Empty = True -- > null _ = False -- -- This is a sound choice also for finite trees. -- -- In practice, unbounded trees are quite uncommon, and can barely be said to -- be @Foldable@. They would typically employ breadth first traversal, and -- would support only corecursive and short-circuit folds (diverge under strict -- reduction). -- -- Returning to simpler instances, defined just in terms of `foldr`, it is -- somewhat surprising that a fairly efficient /default/ implementation of the -- strict 'foldl'' is defined in terms of lazy `foldr` when only the latter is -- explicitly provided by the instance. It may be instructive to take a look -- at how this works. -------------- -- $strictlazy -- -- #strictlazy# -- -- The left fold: -- -- @foldl' f z [a, b, …, x, y]@ -- -- can be expanded as: -- -- @ -- id . g y . g x . … . g b . g a $ z -- where g = flip f -- @ -- -- In which to ensure the correct strictness we must evaluate the accumulator -- before applying the next function. We therefore introduce a helper function -- @f'@ which maps each element @x@ to an application of @g x@ to its eagerly -- evaluated argument, followed by similar application of the @g e@ functions -- for the remaining elements @e@: -- -- > f' x k = \ z -> z `seq` k (f z x) -- -- We see that a lazy 'foldr' of the @g e@ endomorphisms, with @f'@ as as the -- operator, in fact yields a strict left fold, that avoids building a -- deep chain of intermediate thunks: -- -- > foldl' f z0 xs = foldr f' id xs z0 -- > where f' x k = \ z -> z `seq` k (f z x) -- -- The function applied to @z0@ is built corecursively, and its terms are -- applied to an eagerly evaluated accumulator before further terms are applied -- to the result. As promised, this runs in constant space, and can be -- optimised to an efficient loop. -------------- -- $generative -- -- #generative# -- So far, we have not discussed /generative recursion/. Unlike recursive -- reduction or corecursion, instead of processing a sequence of elements -- already in memory, generative recursion involves producing a possibly -- unbounded sequence of values from an initial seed value. The canonical -- example of this is 'Data.List.unfoldr' for Lists, with variants available -- for Vectors and various other structures. -- -- A key issue with lists, when used generatively as /iterators/, rather than as -- poor-man's containers (see [[1\]](#uselistsnot)), is that such iterators -- tend to consume memory when used more than once. A single traversal of a -- list-as-iterator will run in constant space, but as soon as the list is -- retained for reuse, its entire element sequence is stored in memory, and the -- second traversal reads the copy, rather than regenerates the elements. It -- is sometimes better to recompute the elements rather than memoise the list. -- -- Memoisation happens because the built-in Haskell list __@[]@__ is -- represented as __data__, either empty or a /cons-cell/ holding the first -- element and the tail of the list. The @Foldable@ class enables a variant -- representation of iterators as /functions/, which take an operator and a -- starting accumulator and output a summary result. -- -- The [@fmlist@](https://hackage.haskell.org/package/fmlist) package takes -- this approach, by representing a list via its `foldMap` action. -- -- Below we implement an analogous data structure using a representation -- based on `foldr`. This is an example of /Church encoding/ -- (named after Alonzo Church, inventor of the lambda calculus). -- -- > {-# LANGUAGE RankNTypes #-} -- > newtype FRList a = FR { unFR :: forall b. (a -> b -> b) -> b -> b } -- -- The __@unFR@__ field of this type is essentially its `foldr` method -- with the list as its first rather than last argument. Thus we -- immediately get a @Foldable@ instance (and a 'toList' function -- mapping an __@FRList@__ to a regular list). -- -- > instance Foldable FRList where -- > foldr f z l = unFR l f z -- > -- With older versions of @base@, also define sum, product, ... -- > -- to ensure use of the strict 'foldl''. -- > -- sum = foldl' (+) 0 -- > -- ... -- -- We can convert a regular list to an __@FRList@__ with: -- -- > fromList :: [a] -> FRList a -- > fromList as = FRList $ \ f z -> foldr f z as -- -- However, reuse of an __@FRList@__ obtained in this way will typically -- memoise the underlying element sequence. Instead, we can define -- __@FRList@__ terms directly: -- -- > -- | Immediately return the initial accumulator -- > nil :: FRList a -- > nil = FRList $ \ _ z -> z -- > {-# INLINE nil #-} -- -- > -- | Fold the tail to use as an accumulator with the new initial element -- > cons :: a -> FRList a -> FRList a -- > cons a l = FRList $ \ f z -> f a (unFR l f z) -- > {-# INLINE cons #-} -- -- More crucially, we can also directly define the key building block for -- generative recursion: -- -- > -- | Generative recursion, dual to `foldr`. -- > unfoldr :: (s -> Maybe (a, s)) -> s -> FRList a -- > unfoldr g s0 = FR generate -- > where generate f z = loop s0 -- > where loop s | Just (a, t) <- g s = f a (loop t) -- > | otherwise = z -- > {-# INLINE unfoldr #-} -- -- Which can, for example, be specialised to number ranges: -- -- > -- | Generate a range of consecutive integral values. -- > range :: (Ord a, Integral a) => a -> a -> FRList a -- > range lo hi = -- > unfoldr (\s -> if s > hi then Nothing else Just (s, s+1)) lo -- > {-# INLINE range #-} -- -- The program below, when compiled with optimisation: -- -- > main :: IO () -- > main = do -- > let r :: FRList Int -- > r = range 1 10000000 -- > in print (sum r, length r) -- -- produces the expected output with no noticeable garbage-collection, despite -- reuse of the __@FRList@__ term __@r@__. -- -- > (50000005000000,10000000) -- > 52,120 bytes allocated in the heap -- > 3,320 bytes copied during GC -- > 44,376 bytes maximum residency (1 sample(s)) -- > 25,256 bytes maximum slop -- > 3 MiB total memory in use (0 MB lost due to fragmentation) -- -- The Weak Head Normal Form of an __@FRList@__ is a lambda abstraction not a -- data value, and reuse does not lead to memoisation. Reuse of the iterator -- above is somewhat contrived, when computing multiple folds over a common -- list, you should generally traverse a list only [once](#multipass). The -- goal is to demonstrate that the separate computations of the 'sum' and -- 'length' run efficiently in constant space, despite reuse. This would not -- be the case with the list @[1..10000000]@. -- -- This is, however, an artificially simple reduction. More typically, there -- are likely to be some allocations in the inner loop, but the temporary -- storage used will be garbage-collected as needed, and overall memory -- utilisation will remain modest and will not scale with the size of the list. -- -- If we go back to built-in lists (i.e. __@[]@__), but avoid reuse by -- performing reduction in a single pass, as below: -- -- > data PairS a b = P !a !b -- We define a strict pair datatype -- > -- > main :: IO () -- > main = do -- > let l :: [Int] -- > l = [1..10000000] -- > in print $ average l -- > where -- > sumlen :: PairS Int Int -> Int -> PairS Int Int -- > sumlen (P s l) a = P (s + a) (l + 1) -- > -- > average is = -- > let (P s l) = foldl' sumlen (P 0 0) is -- > in (fromIntegral s :: Double) / fromIntegral l -- -- the result is again obtained in constant space: -- -- > 5000000.5 -- > 102,176 bytes allocated in the heap -- > 3,320 bytes copied during GC -- > 44,376 bytes maximum residency (1 sample(s)) -- > 25,256 bytes maximum slop -- > 3 MiB total memory in use (0 MB lost due to fragmentation) -- -- (and, in fact, faster than with __@FRList@__ by a small factor). -- -- The __@[]@__ list structure works as an efficient iterator when used -- just once. When space-leaks via list reuse are not a concern, and/or -- memoisation is actually desirable, the regular list implementation is -- likely to be faster. This is not a suggestion to replace all your uses of -- __@[]@__ with a generative alternative. -- -- The __@FRList@__ type could be further extended with instances of 'Functor', -- 'Applicative', 'Monad', 'Alternative', etc., and could then provide a -- fully-featured list type, optimised for reuse without space-leaks. If, -- however, all that's required is space-efficient, re-use friendly iteration, -- less is perhaps more, and just @Foldable@ may be sufficient. -------------- -- $multipass -- -- #multipass# -- In applications where you want to compute a composite function of a -- structure, which requires more than one aggregate as an input, it is -- generally best to compute all the aggregates in a single pass, rather -- than to traverse the same structure repeatedly. -- -- The [@foldl@](http://hackage.haskell.org/package/foldl) package implements a -- robust general framework for dealing with this situation. If you choose to -- to do it yourself, with a bit of care, the simplest cases are not difficult -- to handle directly. You just need to accumulate the individual aggregates -- as __strict__ components of a single data type, and then apply a final -- transformation to it to extract the composite result. For example, -- computing an average requires computing both the 'sum' and the 'length' of a -- (non-empty) structure and dividing the sum by the length: -- -- > import Data.Foldable (foldl') -- > -- > data PairS a b = P !a !b -- We define a strict pair datatype -- > -- > -- | Compute sum and length in a single pass, then reduce to the average. -- > average :: (Foldable f, Fractional a) => f a -> a -- > average xs = -- > let sumlen (P s l) a = P (s + a) (l + 1 :: Int) -- > (P s l) = foldl' sumlen (P 0 0) xs -- > in s / fromIntegral l -- -- The above example is somewhat contrived, some structures keep track of their -- length internally, and can return it in \(\mathcal{O}(1)\) time, so this -- particular recipe for averages is not always the most efficient. In -- general, composite aggregate functions of large structures benefit from -- single-pass reduction. This is especially the case when reuse of a list and -- memoisation of its elements is thereby avoided, -------------- -- $laws -- -- @Foldable@ instances are expected to satisfy the following laws: -- -- > foldr f z t = appEndo (foldMap (Endo . f) t ) z -- -- > foldl f z t = appEndo (getDual (foldMap (Dual . Endo . flip f) t)) z -- -- > fold = foldMap id -- -- > length = getSum . foldMap (Sum . const 1) -- -- @sum@, @product@, @maximum@, and @minimum@ should all be essentially -- equivalent to @foldMap@ forms, such as -- -- > sum = getSum . foldMap' Sum -- > product = getProduct . foldMap' Product -- -- but are generally more efficient when defined more directly as: -- -- > sum = foldl' (+) 0 -- > sum = foldl' (*) 1 -- -- If the type is also a 'Functor' instance, it should satisfy -- -- > foldMap f = fold . fmap f -- -- which implies that -- -- > foldMap f . fmap g = foldMap (f . g) -- -------------- -- $notes -- -- #notes# -- The absence of a 'Functor' superclass allows -- @Foldable@ structures to impose constraints on their element types. Thus, -- Sets are @Foldable@, even though @Set@ imposes an 'Ord' constraint on its -- elements (this precludes defining a @Functor@ instance for @Set@). -- -- The @Foldable@ class makes it possible to use idioms familiar from the List -- type with container structures that are better suited to the task at hand. -- This allows a user to substitute more appropriate @Foldable@ data types -- for Lists without requiring new idioms (see [[1\]](#uselistsnot) for when -- not to use lists). -- -- The more general methods of the @Foldable@ class are now exported by the -- "Prelude" in place of the original List-specific methods (see the -- [FTP Proposal](https://wiki.haskell.org/Foldable_Traversable_In_Prelude)). -- The List-specific variants are still available in "Data.List". -- -- Surprises can arise from the @Foldable@ instance of the 2-tuple @(a,)@ which -- now behaves as a 1-element @Foldable@ container in its second slot. In -- contexts where a specific monomorphic type is expected, and you want to be -- able to rely on type errors to guide refactoring, it may make sense to -- define and use less-polymorphic variants of some of the @Foldable@ methods. -- -- Below are two examples showing a definition of a reusable less-polymorphic -- 'sum' and a one-off in-line specialisation of 'length': -- -- > {-# LANGUAGE TypeApplications #-} -- > -- > mySum :: Num a => [a] -> a -- > mySum = sum -- > -- > type SlowVector a = [a] -- > slowLength :: SlowVector -> Int -- > slowLength v = length @[] v -- -- In both cases, if the data type to which the function is applied changes -- to something other than a list, the call-site will no longer compile until -- appropriate changes are made. -------------- -- $also -- -- * [1] #uselistsnot# \"When You Should Use Lists in Haskell (Mostly, You Should Not)\", -- by Johannes Waldmann, -- in arxiv.org, Programming Languages (cs.PL), at -- <https://arxiv.org/abs/1808.08329>. -- -- * [2] \"The Essence of the Iterator Pattern\", -- by Jeremy Gibbons and Bruno Oliveira, -- in /Mathematically-Structured Functional Programming/, 2006, online at -- <http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/people/jeremy.gibbons/publications/#iterator>.
